Welcome Lenore Wolfe!

She is a writer of dark
fantasy, paranormal and historical romance. Look who came along – her western-style hottie – Hawk!


Character Interview:

Hawk has an interesting story to tell. 

1. What is Hawk like? Hawk loses everyone he’s ever loved when they are killed by a man who Hawk has never even met. He is a gunfighter who is searching for the men responsible for killing his sister and nephew.

2. What does Hawk do best? What is the perfect location for this action? He is a gunfighter, so the wild west. Hawk has been raised as a Lakota and Cheyenne warrior-but he uses the means of his white heritage to exact revenge.

3. What drives Hawk to do the things he does?
Hawk was raised by the Lakota and Cheyenne Indians. His Indian family dies when he is a teen, and he returns to the sister his father had left behind when he’d was a child. But he’s not home long before he and his brother-in-law, Jake, are called to join the Civil War, and while they are gone, an unknown enemy kills Jake’s wife and son. Hawk is hunting this man when he is led to Cheyenne, Wyoming. He soon learns who is behind the killings–and why that is so significant to his life. But more significant than this–is the woman who has been fighting their mutual enemy–and why.

4. You are introduced to Hawk. Is he happy to meet you? Probably not. He’s suspicious of people who want to meet him. People he should have been able to trust have killed the people he’s loved all of his life, starting with his own father–when he and a band of renegades massacred all their friends in their wagon train.

5. What is Hawk’s favorite guilty pleasure? Mandy. She lights a fire in him that he never knew could exist.

6. How would Hawk describe himself?
Hawk generally wears buckskins–except when he has strapped on his colt 45. Then he is the gunfighter of his white heritage. When he’s dressed like this, he often wears more of cowboy outfit, or a western suit, complete with boots and spurs.

7. What is Hawk’s weakness? Mandy. She can cause him to be vulnerable. And showing any signs of vulnerability to his enemies can get a man killed in the West.

8. Where does Hawk go to regroup/unwind? He frequently rides out to be alone in the wilderness. It’s where he can go to think, plan and bring under control the emotions that he cannot allow to rule his head.

9. What does Hawk live for? Revenge. At least until he met Mandy. Up until then, revenge had been the only thing he had thought about since the day he watched his father kill their friends.

10. What will Hawk kill for? The murder of his friends on the wagon train–and the murder of his sister and nephew.

 

A Few Questions for Hawk

1. Give up three of your deepest, darkest secrets. 

I have to keep Mandy from finding out that the man she has been hunting, the man who murdered her father, is someone–I come to find I know. He is someone who will make her feel like I’ve betrayed her. She must never know that. And one day, I will have to leave her, no matter how much I want to stay, so she must never know how much I love her–because when she finds out what I’ve been hiding–she’ll hate me.

2. If you could have one super power in your existence, what would it be?
The power to strike my enemy like a rattle snake–quick–and deadly.

3. A biography has been written about you. What do you think the title would be in six words or less? A man–feared by his enemies.

4. If money were not an object, where would you most like to live? On the ranch with Mandy.

5. I can never stay with Mandy because
I have a secret–that will make Mandy feel as though I have betrayed her.

6. The next time I kill I will have finally laid to rest the sight of my friend’s sightless eyes, staring up at the sky. Friend’s who were killed by my own father.

7. Why do I always allow Mandy to get under my skin?

8. My favorite flavor is the taste of Mandy’s lips because
she is as sweet as a succulent rose.

9. I love riding through the forest with Mandy because I can feel free of the demons that have rode me all of my life–even if it’s just for that moment.

10. How much pain can you take? As much as it takes to protect Mandy from me. Why? She deserves more than a man who has spent his life behind the barrel of a gun.

11. Name one thing you must do before you die. Kill my father.


To
Tame A Wild Hawk
 


Blurb:

Amanda Kane has spent years with a secret society of Lakota women,
who taught her the ancient ways. She has sought the help of the Grandmothers,
from beyond the veil, to help her stop the man behind the mask. They point her
to the visions she has always had of the man she’s destined to marry—a cowboy
who will help save her ranch. But Hawk is no ordinary cowboy. He carries a
powerful secret. A secret that leads to betrayal.

 

Excerpt:

He was magnificent—standing there, waiting for her to
reach his side. And soon after she did, their lives became irrevocably woven
together. Mandy likened it to a silvery, invisible thread, joining their
hearts. And she knew the Grandmothers smiled.

She
felt rebellious right now with their sure vision of her path. A path with Hawk …
their lives entwined. Her heart pounded—fanciful thoughts. But her mind soon
followed down the path her heart had taken, with what would have been—could
have been—had she not insisted this marriage be in name only.

“Second
thoughts already?” his whisper caressed her face.

She
shook her head at Hawk. “No, the marriage has its merits,” she answered, trying
for a neutral tone.

He
let that jab slide, grinning. “I wasn’t talking about the marriage—exactly.”

Startled,
she looked up and was captured, completely off guard, by the intense look in
his gold eyes. He’d read her mind again, drat the man; or was her body giving
her away?

She
should look away—really she should—but suddenly she couldn’t remember why.

“Give
over, Mandy,” he whispered. His gaze refused to release her from the fine
thread he was weaving around her. She was caressed by it—captured by it. And
each time, the web grew stronger. “You want this marriage in every way, every
bit as much as I; admit it, Mandy.” His low voice fanned the flames.

Mandy
opened her mouth, then shut it. She fought for control, lost, and opened her
mouth again, but the words of denial wouldn’t come.

His
hand touched the side of her face, his thumb sliding possessively over her
lips, stroking her bottom lip again and again until she thought she would faint
with pleasure.

She’d
made a fatal mistake with her heart, thinking she could control this. She
should have listened to the danger signs—to all the warnings, and now it was
too late. There was no holding back—any part of her; at least, not
anything strong enough to hold back this tide of love—and desire. Even though the love part lay only on her
side.

She’d
been a fool.

And
her heart was going to pay the price; but she couldn’t stop now.

 

Hawk’s
intense, green-gold eyes searched her face, and knew the exact instant she
surrendered, and only by iron will did he wait to hear the words.

Words
avowing her complete surrender.

She
nodded.

He
shook his head. “Say it,” he softly commanded. “Tell me what you want.”

Mandy’s tongue darted out to moisten her lips and heard Hawk groan.
She swallowed, her eyes closing for a moment with her body’s reaction to that
simple sound. The fires were rapidly burning out of control. “You.” She looked
into his golden gaze. “I want you.”

I should have known I would end up here... Give me a good book and I'm in heaven. Especially romance, mystery, mayhem, the fantastic and the fey. Give me a laptop and I'm writing any one of these, and not in any particular order.
